Get Big in Japan with official Street Fighter V gym equipment



The chain of Don Quijote shops are sort of like Japanese Wal-Mart, and as weird as you'd expect that to be. The multi-level shop has everything, you name it. Fresh produce, fake Mario costumes, bikes, Gucci purses, the sweetest cushion you've ever seen, evil-looking liquor, camping gear, Russian roulette drinking games, Black Man thongs, and today I found ... Street Fighter V gym equipment they made last year. I was killing time, looking for random nonsense and noticed Zangief looking up my shorts. What in the hell?

In addition to the many strange beauty and fitness products in this store (check the gallery below for more) you can buy 10kg yellow Zangief barbells, licensed by Capcom. An M.Bison (Vega) punching bag. Guile's jump rope! I've never seen these state-side but I would imagine this is too awesome/dorky to fly anywhere but Tokyo. I also found a Ken and Ryu weighted glove pair, but they appear to have sold out at this shop. Each item will set you back between $30-$40 to get your ass in shape. Or you could, I don't know, not eat like you're perpetually on your period? Working out is for suckers.

Think you can do better than these? Show us your best unofficial gym gear photoshops, any game goes, and we'll do a roundup on the home page next if we get enough submissions. How is there not a Chun-li Thighmaster? 

Until then, here's 35 photos of randomness you need in your life:
